Using acts_as_ferret outside rails


#1

How do I use a model that has “acts_as_ferret” defined outside rails?
I’ve tried adding this to the top of my model:

require
“#{RAILS_ROOT}/vendor/plugins/acts_as_ferret/lib/acts_as_ferret.rb”

and then defining RAILS_ROOT and RAILS_ENV in my app that uses the model
outside rails. That got me this exception:

…/vendor/plugins/acts_as_ferret/lib/acts_as_ferret.rb:465:in
ferret_create': undefined methoddebug’ for nil:NilClass
(NoMethodError)

Anyone know what’s the correct way to do this?

Thanks,

Pedro.

I found a way to do it. At the start of my script:

require File.dirname(FILE) + ‘/…/config/boot’
ENV[“RAILS_ENV”] = ‘development’
require RAILS_ROOT + ‘/config/environment’

After that I can use every model as if I was inside rails. I copied most
of this from the code for script/runner.

Cheers,

Pedro.
